We learnt from the pain behavior of thousands of patients in chronic pain that some practitioners will apply a therapy and get no results whatsoever, even after dozens of treatments, and another practitioner using the same therapy would get great results in a short amount of treatments. This has to do with the way practitioners are approaching the pain mechanism. We need to pay attention that the nerve system is alive, intelligent and has responses on its own. The nerve system has a memory in the case of chronic pain. We need to take into consideration how to approach the nerve system for responses. We have seen thousands of chronic pain patients with a long history of orthodox medical and alternative treatments with no response and as soon as you try using a more individual engagement approach you can see even on the first treatment that the nerve system will respond as in our clinical experience 90% of the times.
We have extensive experience in post surgery trauma and chronic pain. There is no denying the predictable physiological responses to tissue damage. We can understand even 2 months of post surgery pain is acceptable in a decreasing level, but what the latest studies state is that even after years 45% to 65%, depending on the type of surgery, of post surgery patients are still in chronic pain ranging from moderate to severe, and this is after undergoing pain clinic attempts to manage pain.
We need to recognize the presence of intelligence to self-regulate within the body. This internal mechanism is responsible for self maintaining, decision making, continuous measurements, running all levels of operation to do with biological, mechanical, immunity, circulatory, etc.… We need to realize the possible interaction with this intelligent system and how we can connect to it for support in the best results outcome from our therapies.
This internal intelligence will be able to recognize and accept or not accept the engagement from the practitioner and this engagement is totally depending on the approach of the practitioner towards this intelligence within. This intelligence can read your intention in the therapy, your honest approach or not, your understanding or not, your interest, your belief and realizations of this intelligence and it will respond accordingly.
Some practitioners within the same field, such as chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists, Bowen therapists and manual therapists can have the best results in pain control and many can't. Why is that? In my opinion any field of alternative medicine can have the best result in chronic pain. It is not a problem with whatever method or technique they are using but their approach is lacking in engagement within the disturbed area.
The practitioner needs to know his technique really well before the engagement and also needs to know that the system within is intelligent and will not be engaged in deeper regulations if they are not well versed in their clinical experience.
